FULECAP | June 17, 2020
Toronto-based company, FULECap, has recently made its debut into the Canadian real estate marketplace by innovating a virtually unlimited and rapidly-available Refundable Deposit Financing (RDF) for commercial real estate buyers. The RDF program provides commercial real estate buyers with short-term deposit capital during the Due Diligence (DD) period, typically the 30 to 90-day cycle before the deal is considered firm. Each deposit loan is held in the vendor’s lawyer’s trust account until the maturity of the DD period. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted both the global and Canadian economies, creating challenging times for individuals and businesses. Many financial institutions are hesitant to lend to borrowers out of fear that they may be unable to pay.
